Please note that the UA Cat Tran Shuttles are accessible and will be providing transport from various parking garages to the Stadium also.   

IMPORTANT:  Where you plan to park should be based on where you want to sit and the type of seating required.  Please read the following closely to determine which parking you should use and what gate and elevator you need to take, especially if you have members in your party who are unable to walk long distances.

Accessible Seating:

Arizona Stadium has four seating areas with accessible features for guests who use wheelchairs or are unable to climb multiple stadium steps.  Seating is not reserved and companion seating is limited to one companion in these areas. Attempts will be made to seat other members of small parties nearby but can’t be guaranteed.  The four areas are described below along with information on parking and which gate to enter.  Once at the elevator or seating area, the disabled guest will be given a voucher to sit in an accessible seating area along with one companion.  A volunteer will direct you to your seating.   Refer to the following maps as you choose a seating area (link to a seating map that shows below areas and gate/elevator locations and an overall map showing parking areas, golf cart/shuttle routes)
